Amanda Serrano is one of the most dominant martial artists of her generation. The 32-year-old holds a 41-1-1 record with 30 knockouts, along with the WBC, WBO and IBO featherweight titles. She also holds a 2-0-1 record in MMA. The only thing left for her to do is acknowledge the best pound for pound.
In this pursuit, Serrano is fully committed to her craft, eliminating distractions and following a rigorous routine that keeps her mind focused on her goal.
Are you trying to achieve it? Unless you have her landline (check it out kids) or Nurse Cindy’s number, your best chance is to catch her at the gym as she doesn't have a cell phone. She'll occasionally use her sister's phone to peek social media or shop on Amazon, but she keeps her screen time to a minimum. Relationship? Wedding? Her commitment is only to her family, her sport, and her pursuit of the greatest status ever.
Someone who was able to connect with the champion was social media star Jake Paul. Serrano was the first boxer to sign with his management company Most Valuable Promotions (MVP). The deal was announced on social media late last week.
Serrano's schedule is evidence of this chase as her routine doesn't change much between training camp and waiting for her next opponent. When asked about this unwavering commitment, Serrano draws on one of her favorite quotes from the late Kobe Bryant, which perfectly sums up her mindset.
“Friends come and go, banners hang forever,” she says. "I want forever."
